1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't compete in the swing states. this is a perfect storm that hit mitt romney this week. it showed barack obama as a commander in chief. the gallup poll was knocked off. it was his best poll. it showed the two competing businesses. not only did you have chris christie out there, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct me if i'm wrong. your superpack and other republican super packs have put $4 million into pennsylvania. team obama, only $625,000. for $4 million, jonathan, you want a rate of return better than a utility execu
registered but didn't vote. we estimate that 340,000 of those were in ohio, alone. this is a state that obama carried with only 262,000 vote margins. so if they show up, it's going to be a big factor that wasn't there four years ago. >> why is no one else covering this, ralph? you've got hard numbers. first of all, first of all, you're talking about wisconsin and iowa as well as ohio, as well as pennsylvania. i mean, romney, that's landslide territory. what i want to ask you is this. why doesn't the press understand the story that you're telling, and to some extent, the work you've done? dan henneger did that absolutely. why don't they get that, ralph? why don't they talk about that? >> there has been a fair amount of coverage. front page story in "the new york times." there's been broadcast coverage. fox news has tone done it. there's been coverage of it. the main reason why, larry, is just this t-- it's not a new problem. it's a systemic problem that a lot of these voters are located in what the dominant media would call flyover country. 47% of this vote is in the south. 27% of this vote is
a few days before the election, president obama is leading mitt romney in three battleground states, wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire. you can head to y nbc.com to reach john harwood's take on the poll and the race for the white house. sdwr joining us is a political reporter at the "washington post" following all of this very closely of course. sean, thanks for joining us. i want to start with this dynamic een obama and chris christie. what's the chris christie strategy here? because it seems to be taking some of the momentum away from his own party. >> yeah, this is really interesting. you have somebody in governor christie who has been an outson critic of president obama. but what we've heard the last three days is nothing but praise for the president and the pearl response to his needs in new jersey. so a little bit of a different tone there. but in times like these when you have natural disasters, you tend to see politicians put politics aside. that said, there's certainly a political up side for obama appearing alongside one of mitt romney's top surrogates yesterday. so sort o
correspondent john harwood joins us. hi, john. >> president obama's campaign hopes it is going to help him for two reasons. one, that he gets to fulfill the role as commander in chief and ahead of the federal government help states that are affected by this, but also because they think they're winning this race in the battlegrounds and that effectively the race is frozen. now governor romney was out in ohio today, campaigning, making some arguments about the auto bailout which has been an issue that's helped president obama in the state of ohio. but the problem for mitt romney and anyone else participating in the campaign right now is all the coverage is drowning out anything that politicians say. we are locked in a very tight race. we had two new polls out this morning, tracking polls. one, the washington post/abc news poll showed mitt romney 49%-brah 49%-barack obama 48%. another poll shows pro seciselye opposite. obama 48%. but they're the same poll. with a margin of error, we have essentially a tie race but the obama team believes that their advantage is in the battleground states like
battleground state of wisconsin shows a dead heat. romney, obama, tied at 49%. so joining me now for an exclusive interview is governor scott walker, republican from wisconsin. governor walker, as always, sir, welcome back to the "kudlow report." we appreciate it. they're tied at 49% which is something of a surprise. the republicans strnts taken the state of wisconsin in a presidential election since 1492. so how does it look, how do you see it right now? >> well, i was out in green bay, wisconsin nearby where the president was today. i've been all over the state the last couple days. momentum is clearly on our side. and you expect that out of somebody advocating for candidates, but i've really seen it. we made 4.5 million voter contacts leading up to the june 5th election. we won by a bigger mar begin than we did in 2010. and that basis of support hasn't let up, that converted over to mitt romney, it got inspired when paul ryan was added to the ticket. but most importantly, the day after mitt romney had that impressive first debate in denver, we saw the phone lines lit up, we sa
state barack obama carried four years ago that mitt romney wants to take away from him. business and other groups allied with the republican campaign are doing the same thing. the u.s. chamber of commerce, though they didn't want us to have a camera in their phone banks, say they're also making millions of calls this weekend. everyone is trying to goose the turnout. the turnout by the two sides is what's going to tell us which of these poll models is correct. the likely voters are something that pollsters can only guess at. they're trying to turn likely voters into actual voters. >> all right, john. thanks so much. we'll keep watching that. very, very important component to this story. >>> 40 minutes before the closing bell sounds on wall street for friday. the market is under pressure today after being up 57 points on the better than expected jobs numbers. a complete reversal. we're looking at a triple-digit decline to end the week. >>> meantime, verizon is warning that now that superstorm sandy could significant hit its bottom line. what about at&t? has it been hit as well? com

. you know, to the extent that they are on some east coast states where, you know, president obama has had a substantial lead, you could see that it may not affect the outcome in some of those states, but, on the other hand, if you're talking about florida, talking about virginia, these are highly competitive states, and we can't predict how it's going to affect it. >> thanks, guys. talk to you later. we've been looking at that video of the capitol building. no, there is no fountain around the capitol. that was rain. >> rain. >> just incredibly visible with the lights, the volume of water that's coming down. unbelievable. >> and we go back to that video that you just saw there. that's point pleasant, new jersey, far from pleasant today. look at the flooding already at this point. this is well before landfall today. >> and well before what they expect will be the worst of the flooding. what will new york city look like tomorrow along with points north and south? more of cnbc's special coverage of hurricane sandy is straight ahead. when you take a closer l. ...at the best schools in the

for president obama. >> obviously it's all happening, the theater of it is happening in the crucial states. the governor is in wisconsin today. as we can see, the president in ohio. you look at the top of drudge, john, and it's all about the complications of the recovery, the gas lines, the frustration. how much vulnerability does that leave the president even though he may appear to be acting presidential? >> reporter: i don't think very much at all. if any at all. because, first of all, the complications are occurring in states that the president is going to win easily. that's new jersey, new york, connecticut, for example, and, secondly, i don't think anybody is blaming the president for any of those complications. certainly chris christie, the keynote speaker at the republican convention this year, is not blaming the president. to the contrary, he's praising the president's leadership. that's an asset for president obama. i don't know how big of an asset. i wouldn't expect it to change a lot of votes but the president is certainly not being hurt by this. >> john, appreciate that. we'll
voters are going to blame president obama for what's going on right now, and leave aside the fact that the states in which the difficulties are occurring db new york, new jersey, connecticut are all reliantly democratic states. what is much more important to the outcome of this election, michelle, is what's going on behind me at this afl-cio phone bank where union volunteers are making calls, doing the painstaking work of identifying callers and getting them to the polls. the chamber of commerce told us they're making millions of phone calls in the final days. interest groups aligned with both campaigns are going to do this non-stop between now and tuesday. of course, many voters have already cast their ballots because of early voting in this country, michelle. but there's a lot of work left to go. the candidates are sprinting and so are the volunteers. >> john, thank you very much. stay there because we're going to come back to you in just a moment. there is that other story that has big impact on the presidential race, and that's the jobs report that came out this morning. our s
? other than entrade, what have you got? >> i don't care about entrade. swing states. >> i guess you have obama up in ohio still. >> yeah, i think obama does have a slight lead in ohio. >> even though the cincinnati inquirer poll just had it tied. >> i understand that. >> it's not rasmussen. which polls do we believe now? >> i understand that. do you want me to -- should we keep going on this or shy deal with andrew's question about the ground game? >> no, we better talk sandy i think. >> okay. sandy effect on the vote is entirely speculative. there are a lot of people yakking about it, but mostly making stuff up. i'll go to a couple things. first of all, obama is believed to have a somewhat more extensive ground game, he has more people on the ground. so in theory, he has more to disrupt. the president's schedule has him doing more events that will have to be canceled than romney. on the other hand, because romney is down a field goal and needs something to happen, the idea that sandy could flereeze things in place for a few days is not necessarily good for him because he had momentum af
leaders work together for the greater good. president obama also showing leadership during this crisis, touring the most ravaged parts of new jersey with that state's republican governor chris christie. who has been a staunch critic of the president. all this coming just six days before the presidential election. so for the president this is, of course, admirable in a crisis, you put politics aside. and we applaud him for doing so. but it also begs the question, where is the leadership on this crisis, our debt, and deficit, and it's one that could have deeper consequences and longer term. 16 trillion dollars and counting, adding more than $1 trillion in debt every year. it's a very different kind of storm, no doubt. but it is one that we can easily see coming. we know the damage it will do, and yet nothing is being done, no leadership. now, washington has a problem. sandy has proven that they actually can work together. wouldn't it be refreshing if they did so to prevent a disaster instead of only coming together after disaster strikes? that will do it for us today, before we go, take
house. what is the to mood in the obama camp a week before the election, john? >> they have enough of an edge in the swing states, in particular, ohio, critical for mitt romney, enough to went election. they realize it is extremely close and realize they could lose it, but feel are fairly confident, at the white house they trying to as hard as they can to focus and project that they are focusing on the storm before the run suggested, tyler, the president doing his job, praised by chris christie, the governor of new jersey, as he was earlier today for attending to the job. that can't hurt, i'm a little skeptical myself of it providing a big boost to his campaign because, he is, after all, doing his job so many voters locked in. i don't expect it to switch a lot of votes but certainly can't hurt for the president to be seen as being his job in a competent way. >> i guess the risk of a screwup would got other bay, it that happened it could be damaging. >> george w. bush found that out. george h. w. bush found that out in 1992 when hurricane andrew hit florida and seen as not doing tha
